Amazon Prime Day Unlocked and Prepaid Phone Deals

Today, 7/12 is Amazon's Prime Day. Billed as "Black Friday in July" for Amazon Prime members, last year's Prime Day was generally considered a bust, lacking in the truly deep discounts of the real Black Friday. Amazon promises to do better this year.

Without further ado, here are my picks for the best current Prime Day deals on prepaid and unlocked phones.

TracFone refurbished LG Sunrise (AT&T) Android phone $4.99 (reg $14.99)

TracFone refurbished LG Lucky (Verizon) Android phone $4.99 (reg $14.99)

Tracfone Alcatel Onetouch Pixi Glitz (AT&T) Android phone $9.99 (reg $19.99)

Unlocked Huawei Honor 5X LTE Android phone $119.99 (reg $199.99)

Unlocked Nextbit Robin LTE Android phone $239.99 (reg $299.99)

Unlocked Huawei Nexus 6P 64 GB LTE Android phone $403.75 (reg $549.99)

Unlocked Huawei Nexus 6P 128 GB LTE Android phone $478.75 (reg $649.99)

Remember, you need to be an Amazon Prime member to get these deals. Prime costs $99.99/year or $10.99/month and includes free 2 day shipping on all orders and unlimited Prime music and video steaming. It's not a bad deal in itself but if you want to get in on the Prime Day deals without the entrance free you can sign up for a free 30 day trial here. Just be sure to cancel the trial before the $30 days is up to avoid having to pay.

Amazon adds new deals every 10 minutes, most of them don't involve prepaid and unlocked phones, but I'll try to update this list with any that do.  Of course, Prime Day isn't just about phones, there are thousands of other deals on everything from clothes and books to big screen TVs.

  1. Be careful if you sign up for the 30 day trial. I cancelled in time and a couple of months later Amazon mysteriously signed me back up and billed me $99. They refunded the money and apologized, but it was a good thing I caught it.

  2. Whoops, date typo in opening sentence Dennis:

    "Today, 7/14 is Amazon's Prime Day"

  3. Sign up through Amazon for a 90-day trial of Audible (an audio book service) and get $10 off your next Amazon purchase. I believe people who haven't yet used the Amazon's Prime Now get $10 their first purchase, as well.

    1. Note that Prime Now is in addition to and is more like a benefit of Prime where Prime Now is for shopping for typically groceries and other available everyday products that you get NOW for same day delivery like within two hours if Prime Now is available in your city. the $10 off is for your first order on Prime Now as an enticement to try Prime Now, plus you may get another $10 discount if you order again on Prime Now within a certain timeframe. with Prime Now, you typically have something more like a supermarket delivery service. they do have Prime Day deals also, but on my PrimeNOW app, at the moment, the categories appear to be limited, and they are currently limited to 366 items, while the Prime Day deals on regular Amazon for Prime members would have thousands and thousands of deals according to news reports.

  4. Amazon has to step up their game by a league or two if they want to entice people who already have a "good enough" phone.

    Sadly, they'll never outdo Cricket's $50 Idol 3.

    That makes Prime day a complete waste, the same way those $20 Volts and free Vibes made other sales irrelevant back during the days of RingPlus.

    It'll probably be a disappointing Black Friday, too.
